Report on Two Oceans Marathon Water Station
On Easter Saturday, 30 Rondebosch Interact pupils got up early to assist the runners at the Two Oceans Marathon. The morning started off early, but well. At 7 am the rain started and it did not stop at all. The boys worked superbly; it was cold, wet and miserable. The encouragement that they gave to the runners at the water station was magnificent while the rain was driving down. Not once did anyone complain or ask to leave early. When it came to the clean-up at the end, they did everything fast and efficiently, even though all they wanted to do was to get home, to get dry and warm. They served for at least 8 hours, 7 of them in the pouring rain.
Well done to those who were there – you can be very proud of yourselves.
